I had a group of about ten business associates at dinner. The food was fantastic but a dinner should not take in excess of three hours for two courses, a starter and a main. Good super, the service was very poor.

I came with colleagues for a dinner. Nice various starters with tasty oysters. Wine is good at reasonable price. I took fish as main dish but was little over cooked. Nice atmosphere if you like restaurants in malls but it's difficult in Johannesburg to find restaurants out of malls. You can go for it, service is good and efficient.

Centrally located, very nice decor, noisy when it's full. Good service, when it's not busy. But food quality is average. The wine selection is very good. There are other eateries in town with much better quality. I don't understand how come it's rated as one of the top ten restaurants by tripadvisor.

a very classy and cozy restaurant. It is next to the skywalk (footbridge) from the Sandton Convention Center to the Nelson Mandela square. Ask for their red wine

I was taken here as my goodbye lunch before heading back to Australia. The staff were so fabulous, absolutely 5 star service. I really wanted to try ostrich before I left, but didn't want the full steak of it in case I didn't like. We asked the waiter if there was any type of entree with ostrich. He went to... More

Not many places of this calibre will take an advance phone order for a speciality dish to be ready at a specific time - but Pigalle did! Super setting, great food, fantastic staff!

Visited this restaurant twice, once in August and once in mid-September, and both times were very pleased with the ambience, food, and service. It is certainly an attractive room and the meals were not only beautifully plated, but tasted very good as well. The highlight, however, was the service. In many places we visited in South Africa we found the... More

Great location just of Nelson Mandela Square, with a choice of both inside and alfresco dining. Great menu with lots of choice. I have been to Pigalle twice on this 10 day trip and it was very good on both occasions. Service is very good, food is delivered in a timely fashion and the quality is excellent. Well worth a...
